Wikipedia is already available for the iphone.. wikipanion is free and in the apps store now it formats the wiki pages to fit comfortably on the screen. iWik is another similar app and costs £0.59 there is at least one web-app (does not install but makes a link on your phone to wikipedia) from apple. Also don't forget you can just use the Safari Browser on your phone to go direct to the wikipedia site directly...

Apart from the normal download from app store that any of the apps require you do not need to download anything else nor prepare your phone in any way to use

Congratulations on becoming the proud new owner of an <b>iPhone 4</b>, one of the most intuitive and smart phones in the world! The <b>iPhone OS 4</b> is a major upgrade from previous versions and there are many exciting new features to read.<br /> <br /> We did the research and provide five tips for getting the best of the iPhone 4:<br /> <br /> Manage your applications to perform multiple tasks<br /> <br /> A major new features of the<b> iPhone 4</b> is the ability to multi-task. Update all your applications so they can run in the background while you work on something else. Go to the App Store and click update "All touch".<br /> <br /> Guidance Lock<br /> <br /> Sometimes, the <b>iPhone</b> is too smart! When you change your position that the iPhone detects movement and change the screen orientation from horizontal to vertical. This can be useful but there are times when you want to lock the orientation - and now you can activate the Lock feature Portrait. Just double tap the home button and the shift to the right to reveal the portrait lock icon.<br /> <br /> Color or color?<br /> <br /> If you wish to enter the British version of English, then click the globe icon when using the keyboard (for example, to write notes or e-mail). Globe changing English (U.S.) and English (United Kingdom).<br /> <br /> Control the number of applications that run!<br /> <br /> Running multiple applications while cool, can also be a battery leak. Double-click the Home button to see how many applications you currently use. Kill all the applications you no longer need to save battery life and processing power. You kill an application, press and hold the icon until you see a sign "-" appears. Tap the sign.<br /> <br /> Improved search functions<br /> <br /> The search functionality on the<b> iPhone</b> has always been a big help, but now Apple has included the ability to search the web and Wikipedia. As usual slide right on the home page to activate the search, then scroll down the page to find and search the web search Wikipedia.<br /> <br /> Bonus Tip - Protect your<b> iPhone Case</b>!<br /> <br /> All good high points of the Council include a bonus point and this article is no exception! The iPhone is an absolutely amazing gadget, but it is not bullet proof! An accidental fall and destroy the filter.

How to download

1. Does your device support iOS 7?
iOS 7 is supported by iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5; iPad 2, third and fourth-generation iPads, iPad mini; and the fifth-generation iPod touch. Also, certain features of iOS may not be available on all devices. For instance, the iPhone 4S doesn't support features like AirDrop and live filters in the camera app. The iPad 3 also doesn't support AirDrop.

2. Backing up your device
If you don't regularly backup the data on your iPhone or iPad, now is a good time. You'd like your favourite apps and settings to transition to iOS 7 and for that you'll need to take a backup.

You can take a backup your device in two ways, backing up to iCloud (Apple's servers) or by backing up data to your Mac or PC via iTunes.
3. You can either install iOS 7 directly to your iOS device through an over-the-air Software Update via Wi-Fi or connect it to your computer and install the update through iTunes.

To upgrade over the air, go to the Settings app, tap on General and then on Software Update. Wait for the update message to appear and tap on Download and Install.

If you want to install the update through your PC or Mac instead, connect your device to the computer and wait for iTunes to open or fire it up manually. You'd typically get a software update prompt but if you don't just go to the device Summary page by clicking on the name of your iOS device, and click on the 'Check for Update' button, and click on Download and Update.
4. After updating your iPhone to iOS 7, you'll see a welcome screen, post that you'll be prompted to enable Location Services, following which you will get a page where you can select whether you want to set up your iPhone as a new phone, restore from an iCloud Backup or restore from an iTunes Backup. You'll need to enter your iCloud credentials and stay connected to a Wi-Fi network if you select the iCloud backup option or ail need to connect your phone to your computer if you select the iTunes option. After a few more prompts asking for your iCloud and iTunes credentials and pages displaying terms of use, you'll finally see your Home screen with a brand new OS.

Computer shuts down when connecting iphone

Try the latest itunes:

- Quit iTunes if it's currently open.
- Visit Apple Downloads to see if there are newer versions of iPod Updater (this contains software for all models of iPod) and iTunes than what's installed on your computer.
- If there are newer updates available, download the Windows versions of the updates, then run the installers on your computer to install the updates.
- When it's finished, iTunes will already be updated, but you'll need to run the iPod Updater to update your iPod, so connect your iPod to your computer.
- On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to iPod, point to iPod Updater, then click the latest iPod Updater.
- Click the Update button to update the software on your iPod (if the Update button appears unavailable, your iPod is already up to date).

If it still fails, remove the automatic restart from windows:

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
Go to Advanced
Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"
